Krauthammer on the Election

Charles Krauthammer’s column today in the Washington Post (online) is simply excellent.  He makes a solid case for John McCain, turning attention away from economic woes to the simple reality that we live in a dangerous world, and with regard to national security, McCain is by far more worthy of our trust than is Obama.  He writes:

There’s just no comparison. Obama’s own running mate warned this week that Obama’s youth and inexperience will invite a crisis — indeed a crisis “generated” precisely to test him. Can you be serious about national security and vote on Nov. 4 to invite that test?

And how will he pass it? Well, how has he fared on the only two significant foreign policy tests he has faced since he’s been in the Senate? The first was the surge. Obama failed spectacularly. He not only opposed it. He tried to denigrate it, stop it and, finally, deny its success.

The second test was Georgia, to which Obama responded instinctively with evenhanded moral equivalence, urging restraint on both sides. McCain did not have to consult his advisers to instantly identify the aggressor.

I hope we are not so blinded by the economy on November 4th that we put into office a man not ready or capable of leading us wisely in these dangerous times.
